The Hall County Government Center is now home to the most recent piece of large-scale artwork installed as a part of the 2015 Free Range Art Project, a partnership between the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce’s Vision 2030 and the North Georgia Community Foundation.
The 8’x8′ installation features local artist Sharon Farkas’ piece “Wauka Mountain High.” The work of art hangs just outside the north entrance to the Hall County Government Center, located at 2875 Browns Bridge Road in Gainesville.
“Hall County is proud to promote public art and the work of local artists through this venture,” Hall County Administrator Randy Knighton said. “We are honored to have been selected as a venue for this art and look forward to expanding this facility’s participation in the promotion of public art in the future.”
Hall County is currently in the process of putting together a public art program for the interior of the government center as well. More information regarding that program will be released in coming weeks.
